The Foo Fighters, The Roots and Imagine Dragons were tapped to perform on Super Bowl XLVIII weekend.

The Associated Press released an update about the development on Dec. 19: 

"Foo Fighters, The Roots and Imagine Dragons will perform on a cruise ship ahead of the Super Bowl. 

"The bands will hit the stage on the Bud Light Hotel New York, which will be docked at Pier 88 in Manhattan on the Hudson River. The Super Bowl will be played Feb. 2 at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. 

"The Roots will perform with Run DMC and Busta Rhymes on Jan. 30, while Grammy-nominated Imagine Dragons will perform a day later.

"Foo Fighters will headline the main event on Feb. 1, where Zac Brown Band will also perform.

"Fall Out Boy and country singer Jake Owen will play a concert before the Super Bowl.

"The cruise ship will offer lodging for 4,000 guests in 1,900 staterooms." 

John Blistein of Rolling Stone notes the other venue of the concerts will be at the Interpid Sea, Air and Space Museum. He also adds the opportunity to perform prior to Super Bowl XLVIII comes in the wake of The Foo Fighters announcing on Oct. 2, 2012 they were going on hiatus. 

Lead vocalist Dave Grohl made the announcement on the band's Facebook page on that day:

"Yes...I was serious. I'm not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. It feels strange to say that, but it's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while. It's one of the reasons we're still here. Makes sense? I never want to NOT be in this band.

"So, sometimes it's good to just...put it back in the garage for a while..."  

The Foo Fighters are also currently working on a new album which Grohl says is being written "in a way that I don't think has ever been done before," as told to Blistein's Rolling Stone colleague, Steve Baltin, on Nov. 26. 

Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars will be performing at halftime of Super Bowl XLVIII.
